For decades after the Second World War, historians and writers depicted cultural life in Germany's Weimar Republic as an unstable mixture of avant-garde experimentation, decadence, and proto-fascist tendencies. However, their definition of culture treated it as a canon created by... elites and intellectuals, excluding the everyday practices and thorough popular participation that were such a crucial aspects of Weimar life. This volume brings together a remarkable array of studies to provide an accessible cross-section of these new cultural history approaches. Included here are investigations of visual and political culture, transnational currents in the mass media, and the intense popular interest in sports, health, and nature, all attesting to the extraordinarily multi-faceted nature of democracy in interwar Germany.
